From the start of conception,
Life as we know it
Begins with a woman.
From our grandmothers womb,
Another generation of us,
Are given breath to speak loud
Speak proud, yes all of us
Women are the sirens of change
It is a woman whose voices sing
From the chains of freedom with Harriet
Down to the White House Chariot, Michelle
Their voices ring louder than ever before
So we can have such beauties like Malala to adore
From the troubling of ages
Puberty and patriarchy alike
Women strut through every struggle
Without a care in sight
As we bleed
We rise up to the power
That power that only a Justice can tower
For Ruth’s demand, meant that Steinem could stand
And Shirley Chisholm then had a chance!
For centuries women have been treated like the underdogs
When in reality, we have been the ones who’ve changed it all!
For men, for women
For all people and their children
Women are the reason we keep it all together
Being that behind every woman should stand a man, better
Equality shouldn’t be privilege but a right
And it doesn’t take much
But surely we must fight
Fight for the voices of those who have been silenced
Fight against the grain for the ones who have been quiet
Moving forward we must remember,
These battles we win will change the world forever.
From our hearts to yours
Happy Women’s Month to you,
No matter who you are,
You are wonderful just being you.
